Favorite block in the city. Very narrow cobblestone street enclosed by historic half-timber homes. Used by pedestrians (only an occasional taxi can use to drop off or pick up customers). Nice shops along the street, including St Romain creperie. A few walking tours crowd the street, but usually quiet and pleasant.

Hardly merits a separate entry. A picturesque street in Old Rouen. My hotel was there so I got to know it well.

Rue des Chanoines runs off Rue Saint Romain and is the most amazing little narrow lane running under (or through) the timbered houses. Rue Saint Romain itself is a charming cobblestoned street lined with a variety of interesting shops and leading right up to the Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Rouen. Rue de la Croix de Fer also runs off Rue Saint... More

this part of Normandy has some spectacular villages with exceptional timbered buildings. Rouen probably some of the best. Best toured on a Sunday early, so you can enjoy the the sights with out the crowds

Three of us rented a small apartment on this street. Our building was 300-400 years old, half timbered and plaster. Many small shops on the street. It was one block from Notre Dame Cathredal and just a little farther to City Center. We were within walking distance of everything we needed; markets, restaurants, shops, museums, etc. Just to the North... More

The buildings surrounding this square is beautiful and made me think I was in Germany instead of France. There's lots to see, including the spot nearby where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.

Lovely little area, just a stroll on a nice day, like the rest of the town. Go when the shops are open though, more of a buzz.
